I found this recipe and decided to change it up a little bit. Everyone I have made this for absolutely loves it! So many flavors and just the right amount of juiciness for this chicken dish.

Even picky eaters are going to love this stuffed chicken recipe. The combination of cheese is very savory and flavorful. There's just enough fresh garlic to add a pop of flavor but not be overpowering. Rolling the chicken in melted butter, then coating with bread crumbs, crisps up when baked and helps to keep the chicken breasts juicy. This will be a big hit with your family.

Tip: The bottom of the chicken does get a little soggy but it's still good. To remedy that, put a wire cooling rack on your baking tray and bake the chicken on that. The air will circulate and crisp the bottom of the chicken. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 1 c
    shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 c
    shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 c
    Italian seasoned bread crumbs

How to Make Cheesy Garlic Stuffed Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Butterfly fillet the chicken breasts and lay flat in order to stuff them. (youtube.com/watch?v=PBSAEHnFaO4)
  2. Stuff inside with both cheese's on the breast.
  3. Then add garlic.
  4. Sprinkle with sweet basil before closing up and securing with toothpicks or short skewers. (Make sure you have secured the opening because the next step is to roll in butter and bread crumbs.)
  5. Melt the butter in a flat dish with sides so you can still roll the chicken in it.
  6. Then roll in bread crumbs.
  7. Place them in a baking dish or pan.
  8. Pour remaining butter, or melt a little more, over the chicken.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour.
  10. Make sure to pull out all the toothpicks or skewers before serving. (I like to use the short skewers because they don't get in the way and they are easier to take out once the chicken is ready.)
